3. He is no longer in a contract year. That was last year. (Motivation?)
4. I'm sure some of the revenge factor with Boston has worn off a bit. (Motivation?)
5. He is already injured and missing ST games. (See #1)

But he's under 6'5" so he can hit for power and average.

He's older, slower, and playing in the NL. There's risk involved, and I usualy like to go with safer options that early in the draft.

I rank Manny in the low-to-mid twenties as well, but I don't understand where people are getting the "it's not a contract year" argument. He has been probably the most consistent offensive player in baseball for nearly his entire career. How many of those seasons were contract years?

Being a Dodger fan, I hope Manny tears the cover off the ball all friggn' year, but I'd don't think I'll draft him this year, weather it's the 2nd or 3rd round, it's too early for me.
